Archie, 1976

Andy Warhol

the start of the 70s marked a new era in Warhol’s pet-keeping habits as, in 1973, his boyfriend Jed Johnson persuaded him to get a dog. This resulted in a dark brown, shorthaired dachshund puppy called Archie with whom Warhol soon became besotted. ... He even used to take the dachshund to press conferences as his "alter ego" and, in Fremont's words, "would deflect questions to [Archie] that he did not want to answer."
